Realtek AC'97 sound card not working on vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have a Realtek AC'97 build in sound card on my MSI 865 PE Neo 3 motherboard and the sound is not working on Vista Ultimate.

    It has not worked since Windows installed its drivers from the Windows Update, I tried different drivers from the manufacturer's website and none of them worked, it always installs fine then there's that exclamation mark beside the driver on the device manager, and I have a Code 39 error: "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing."

    I have tried almost everything I could think of to get it working but it won't work, I also looked for all previous posts on this and never worked, I already tried: installing the default Windows driver for it, the latest driver from the manufacturer website and nothing works.

    Any help on this would be much appreciated.
